Dreaming of a previous life is dreaming about your soul in a previous life. Each person has had a different number of previous lives. In the dream state, the soul is capable of remembering them.
Many people seek psychic advice to learn who they were in a previous life, hoping to be told that they were famous people from the past, but the truth is that they were just another ordinary person. This in no way diminishes a person's prior life experience. In the past, only a few people could be considered celebrities. However, the lessons learned and retrieved from previous lives are priceless.
It is possible to fantasize about being a famous person in the past. However, this does not necessarily imply that you were that person. A dream in which you are Hitler, for example, will have its connotations of control or oppression and is most likely your psyche working out something in your life. Just because you fantasize about being Hitler does not mean that you are his reincarnation. The key is in the details, such as speaking a foreign language while awake and historical facts can be proven once you wake up and examine them.
When you have an actual past life dream, you allow your mind to be opened to the lessons and information gained from your previous incarnation. Sometimes, it is just a memory of interacting with a loved one, being in the war, or other snippets of life. Other times, you will discover your love in a previous life, leading you to someone in your current life. We retain lessons from these lives, and the knowledge is there for us to take, usually when the information is most needed or when there is an intense desire for the information.
Other aspects of dreams are still significant. Even in a past life dream, for example, colours are often present that tie everything together. In a love dream, you may notice a lot of pink or that the dream has a pink tint to it. If you are looking for emotional or physical healing, there may be a lot of blues and greens. Pay attention to small colour details to gain a better understanding of deeper dream meanings.
